I USED to think that what Ramsey needed was a much larger library. It crossed my mind that the large area across the road from the Rainbow supermarket, which has remained a derelict site for many years, could be turned into a new library building and community centre. But unfortunately the present library is getting progressively smaller in terms of floor space, due to so many computers. Also, the introduction of very many paperbacks somehow doesn't reflect my ideal library.

Hundreds of people enjoy reading, and I feel the library should reflect this, because the computer age is taking over what used to be an amenity for lovers of the written word.
